MORE than two dozen teams fought a battle of wits to be crowned the Brains of Avalon recently.

The Glastonbury and Street Lions Club (CIO) welcomed 21 teams to the 37th annual Brains of Avalon Quiz at Glastonbury Town Hall, all competing for the honour of winning the John Bromfield Trophy.

Competition from all the teams was keen but nonetheless there was a very sociable and friendly atmosphere in the room all evening.

The winning team was Forum who regained the trophy from last year’s winners Middle Rump who came third behind second place Tor 1st Class.

The winning Youth Team was Orchards from the boarding house of the same name at Millfield School.

An event spokesperson said: “Once again the club had fantastic support from the local 'quiz' community who came along in numbers to make the evening both a success and good fun.

"Congratulations to Forum who have now won the trophy 18 times."

Questions on varied topics were set once again by Lion, Mike Edmunds, who succeeded in putting together 15 rounds of questions that resulted in a spread of scores but allowing everyone to enjoy some successful rounds.

The evening was kept moving along by quizmaster, fellow Lion Chris Ford, and resulted in nearly £450 being raised for the Lions Club’s Charity Trust Fund.
